I'm curious about your laptop styles. Everyone, take a picture of your laptop lid and share. Are you a sticker person or not? Boost like crazy
You know how something can be 'over-engineered'? Well, I think some things are over-mathematicianed.
This bouncy ball, on sale for a couple of quid next to the tills at Mothercare, is a fine example.
